How to interpret this infobox

The Gondia-Chanda Railway was a 2ft 6in/762mm narrow gauge(NG) line, owned by Government of India(GoI) and worked by Bengal Nagpur Railway(BNR).

Work started in 1905 but due to shortage of funds was not completed until 1916. [1] [2] [3]

The Gondia-Chanda Railway merged with the Jubbulpore-Gondia Railway and the Nagpur-Chhindwara Railway to form the Satpura Railway around 1920.
